OUR PRACTICE AREAS
– 1997, Osteen Law begins
On June 30, 1997, Joel Osteen, a former Assistant District Attorney, purchased 113 N. Commerce Street, an older house adjacent to the Liberty County Courthouse, in downtown Hinesville. After major renovations were completed, he opened the Law Office of C. Joel Osteen later that year and began a practice representing people who had been injured in car accidents, were charged with crimes or just needed help in legal matters.
– 1998, Jay joins Joel in practice
Jay Osteen, Joel’s brother, joined Joel in practice in early 1998 and formed Osteen & Osteen. Jay brought additional experience in handling personal injury cases, including major automobile and trucking accidents. Jay and Joel continued to practice out of the North Commerce Street office until more space was necessary as the practice grew and more staff was necessary to handle the increasing caseload.
– 1998 , Office opens at Fraser St. and Ogelthorpe Hwy.
On July 7, 1998, 100 Fraser Street was purchased, and after major renovations, Osteen & Osteen moved to the corner of Fraser Street and Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville. The office was later expanded to double the size, including the construction of a courtroom inside the office. Jay and Joel practiced at this location focusing on major personal injury cases for the next sixteen years. After successfully representing clients in major commercial vehicle and trucking accidents, commercial airline crashes, automobile accidents, products liability cases, maritime injury cases, medical malpractice cases and pharmaceutical negligence cases, the office was sold in late 2013 to make way for a new office.
– 2014 , New, larger office built across the street
A new, larger office was constructed across the street from the old location on Fraser Street in early 2014 and the firm moved over. On July 3, 2014, Osteen & Osteen became Osteen Law Group, LLC. Jay and Joel and the experienced Osteen Law Group team continue to represent injured clients in a variety of legal matters at their new location at 101 Fraser Street, Hinesville, Georgia, next to Zaxby’s on Oglethorpe Highway. In addition to personal injury cases, the firm represents clients in matters including criminal and DUI trial work, wills, estates, and business formation and litigation. However, as from the beginning, their practice focuses on representing clients with serious injuries caused by the negligence of others.
